I have setup a Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Controller. As part of the installation, I've also added the role of Certificate Authority to my Windows Server 2008 Domain Controller. (This box also provides DNS lookups & DHCP support)
Anyway, I've created my domain ("TheSimpsons.local"), and the Domain Controller is (obviously) part of the domain ("Homer.TheSimpsons.local")
However, when I attempt to use SSL certificates on the server, they only "work" when I use the fqdn of the server. (Where "work" means the web-browser does not show a security warning when the user accesses the server)
Is it possible to generate a certificate such that both the fqdn & short name of the computer can be successfully authenticated with the cert?
(I've looked into Wildcard certificates a bit, but it seems to me that they many variations of a fdqn (such as www.server.local, server.local, test.server.local, etc), but doesn't support both a short name & a fqdn, but I could be wrong!)
